Tickets for Japan’s charity match against a J. League select side in Osaka next week have sold out, the Japan Football Association said Wednesday.

All 38,000 tickets for the game at Nagai Stadium on March 29 were snapped up in less than an hour after going on sale at 10 a.m. the same day. The proceeds will be donated to victims of the deadly March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
